How to Make Edible Garland

Holidays are about the memories we make along the way. Before artistic glass-blown ornaments, trees were decorated with popcorn and cranberries. Today we have sweet lifesavers, pretzels and other candies to trim our tree. Let’s make some edible garland!

CAUTION: Pets & popcorn lovers could be the result of disappearing popcorn. Be alert for popcorn thieves.



What you’ll need:

Hard Candy Garland
Hard candy in wrappers
Stapler

Popcorn Garland
Sewing needle
Thread or floss
Popcorn (air popped)
Cranberries

Candy Garland
Gumdrops, candy with holes, pretzels, etc.

How to make it:

Hard Candy Garland
1. Line up candies in a colorful pattern & staple the wrapper ends together.

Popcorn Garland
1. Decide the length of your garland and thread needle.
2. Tie a knot at the opposite end of the thread.
3. Start with cranberries to set against the knot, alternate popcorn and cranberries until you reach the end of your thread.
(NOTE: The popcorn you string should be a day old; fresh popcorn breaks too easily. Also, it is best to use air popped popcorn, not popcorn popped in butter or oil.)

Candy Garland
1. Decide the length of your garland and thread needle.
2. Tie a knot at the opposite end of the thread.
3. Start with gumdrops or something similar to set against the knot, alternate candies in a pattern until you reach the end of your thread.
